    A while back I had a trigger job done by a guy who's very popular on the SKS Survival forum. He did a fine job, except that he replaced the hammer spring with a lighter one resulting in light primer strikes. He sent me a replacement spring which I said I would replace myself.

    Well here it is like two years later and I still haven't done it. There used to be a video on youtube for this but now I cannot find it. Mind you, this is the HAMMER spring I need to replace, not the firing pin spring. Anyone know of a video link?? I'd like to sell my SKS but I don't want to do it until the primer strike issue is fixed.

    Be warned...without the proper tools that spring can be a booger to install! I know this from the dirty words that fell out of my mouth one evening. It can be done though.:confused:
